The Women make it two wins from two and net ten goals in two games.

The Women were back at home this weekend and picked up their second win of 2024 in the FAWNL.

It was another five nil victory for the side after beating Notts County away last weekend and another clean sheet for the side.

Both sides started brightly but Khalsa turned the screw early in the opening stages and had 3-4 excellent chances to open up the scoring. This early pressure resulted in Moors dropping deeper, attempting to frustrate and attack the home side on the counter.

Khalsa were probably guilty of forcing the ball after this change but eventually adapted as the game went on, making more intelligent runs and passes to open up the visitors. It wasn't long after before Stubbs opened the scoring with a low, accurate finish into the bottom corner.

Stubbs created the next opportunity after cutting inside, crossing early only to see the ball hit an opposition players hand in the box, resulting in the referee pointing to the spot. Despite attempts affect the outcome and put off the penalty taker, Smith converted calmly to make it 2-0.

The side settled and this gave the team a boost and they took advantage by scoring two more goals in very quick succession to make it 4-0 heading into half time. The first was a superb strike and finish from Cooper from well outside the box which went just under the bar, making it very difficult for the keeper to reach. Despite not having many touches of the ball first half, Joyce was alert and deadly with the one clear opportunity she had, latching onto a pass from Owen which she buried cleanly into the bottom corner.

After half-time Moors made a couple of substitutions and changed their approach in a bid to turn around their fortunes. The visitors came out re-invigorated and out of the blocks quickly in the opening stages with most of the positive play and threat coming from substitute Rogers. Unfortunately for Moors, the team was resolute and Tilly Hall was at hand and alert if and when the visitors broke through the defensive line.

The fifth and final goal came from a well struck free-kick from Cooper which hit the bar and the re-bound was put away calmly by Graham.

A great result and performance by the entire squad including the subs who each made an impact to achieve another great result and three points in the league.
